BEAUTIFUL STENCIL BACKGROUND: a video tutorial!

Hello friends!
This is Anila, on the Craftyscrappers Blog and Today I have a video tutorial for you all …showing how to use a stencil to create a background for a card. 
FG.jpg
My card mainly focuses on the use of the stencil with distress inks to create your card.
I will be showing a simple distressing technique that will help you achieve clean distressed backgrounds with the stencils.
Craftyscrappers Stencils are high quality stencils,for you to create amazing backgrounds
or highlights on your projects.
These stencils comes in a trendy package and are 6.5×6.5INCH in size thats the Big size and are also available in Mini Sizes, which covers 4×5.5INCH in size,
which makes it easier for you to twist and turn the stencils according to your work surface.
And the most incredible thing about them is, they are pocket friendly.

For this project I have used lot of awesome supplies from Craftyscrappers.
A brief description:
On how to create this Mixed Media Home Decor
  • For this project,I took a simple silver card stock and applied some Ash shimmer paste and let it dry.
  • Once its dried I run it through an embossing folder.Then I stuck this sheet to cardboard.
  • For second layer I took a gift wrapping shimmery sheet and again embossed it with same folder,then stuck that on top of base with help of double sided tape.
  • After that I stuck a window die cut from one of the pattern papers.
  • Next I used Craftyscrappers “IM Stuck On U” stamp set to stamp and water color these beautiful succulents.I did fussy cutting to these stamps and again attached with double sided tape.
  • The sentiment is a metal embellishment stuck on a background created using same ash shimmer paste and some blue and green metallic paints.

  • Take some generous quantity of texture paste and spray shimmer spray “Grape Juice” to it.
  • Mix it well and apply this paste to the corner of the page using Feather Stencil from the store.
  • Next take a MDF sentiment and apply a coat of gesso to it.
  • Once dry spray it with shimmer sprays “sweet Pumpkin” and “Grape Juice”.
    Both the shades blended so well to give a beautiful shiny colour effect.

BEAUTIFUL FUN-FOILED BACKGROUNDS:a video tutorial!

Hello Everyone,
Hope you are doing good and that you had loads of fun this diwali… 🙂
Well, im sure you all had!!!
Here I’m back at Craftyscrappers blog today and this time I have a Video tutorial on how i created some beautiful,sparkly backgrounds for cards using craftyscrappers Fun foils, for our ongoing challenge, “Sparkle it up”!!!
VIDEO1.jpg
This is the first time I’ve used foils in my cards and I really love the outcome…..
Craftyscrappers shiny transfer foils are professional grade and are proudly made in INDIA, and these super glitzy foils , add Stunning Sparkle and shine to your craft projects.
What stopped me till now was the investment in laminator machine for foiling….
But these fun foils are really fun to work with.
You don’t need any fancy tools for this.. and in my Video tutorial i will show how these can be easily used without a lamination machine and also work like a charm with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils to your craft surfaces.
